Re: off road diesel

im not sure about the sulfur, we stopped running our equipment off of it because we werent getting much of a deal on it.. last i heard it was a little low on sulfur but could be wrong. we always threw in some diesel clean cetane boost just for kicks.

Re: off road diesel

most fuel today is all ULSD. 15ppm sulfur for both on and off rd diesel fuel. depending on what station you get off road at.. makes it a little less expensive, one station is 30 cents lower then on road, but another one ive seen around here is 8 cents lower then on road... dam price gougers!

Re: off road diesel

I would add a cetane boost. I posted this info in another thread.....

" Diesel engines run well with a cetane index from 40 to 55. Diesel fuels with a higher cetane index which have shorter ignition delays provide more time for the fuel combustion process to be completed. Hence, higher speed diesels operate more effectively with higher cetane number fuels. There is no performance or emission advantage when the cetane is raised past approximately 55. After this point, the fuel's performance hits a plateau. In the US diesel at the pump can be found in two cetane ranges: 38-42 for regular diesel, and 42-45 for premium. Eurpore requires a cetane level of 51. Premium diesel also may have additives to improve cetane and lubricity, detergents to clean the fuel injectors and minimize carbon deposits, water dispersants, and other additives depending on geographical and seasonal needs.

A cetane boost is a good thing but a diesel fuel additive with all the above mentioned additives is the best route to go IMO. "
